Just Got Engaged? Consider Getting A Prenup

Congratulations on getting engaged! Are you considering getting a prenup? Here are three reasons why you should consider getting a prenup before you marry the love of your life. We understand that you want to think about getting married and planning the wedding, not getting divorced. But, you don't expect your house to catch on fire just because you have insurance. Think about a prenup as insurance. 1) Divorce costs money. One of the biggest fears of people potentially getting a divorce is how much it is going to cost. Without a prenup, divorce can cost significantly more in legal fees. A prenup prevents this from happening. 2) If you think divorce is expensive, how would you feel inheriting someone else's debt, without knowing it? When you marry someone, debt is combined and is considered joint debt. Without a prenup, if you one day get a divorce, you might be stuck with debt that is not your own. When you go through the prenup process everyone is required to disclose their debts so no one is going into the marriage blind. 3) A prenup is the best way to keep your family's inheritance in your family. Without a prenup, your inheritance might be divided and part of it given to your spouse, and there is potential that if they one day remarry, for their new family to receive your family's inheritance. A prenup can prevent this mess. If you have more questions about prenups, give our office a call today. If you want more tips and advice about family law, subscribe to our YouTube channel!

Here’s What You Need To Know If You've Had A Divorce Action Filed Against You

Divorce is scary, nobody ever gets married planning to divorce one day. You’re probably feeling a plethora of emotions. If you’ve just had a divorce action filed against you, there are three things you need to focus on first. First, let’s make an action plan. Ask yourself a few questions. If you have children, what do you want the custody agreement to look like? Consider the day-to-day stuff. What do you want to have and what are you willing to share? No kids? If you have property with your spouse what do you want to happen with that? It is very likely that you share property, even if you might not realize it. Florida is a community property state, meaning that if you’re married in Florida then anything you own, your spouse owns, and anything they own, you own. This even includes property and debt. How do you want the debt to be divided? What feels fair to you? Second, start gathering your documents. This includes 3 years of taxes, 12 months of bank statements, 6 months of paystubs, deeds for property you own or have owned, and the list goes on and on. My biggest tip — do not procrastinate! Once you’ve been served, you have only 20 days. If you’ve been served, call us. You don’t have to do this alone. When you’re ready to start your new beginning, give us a call.
